Business Insider recently ranked each state on how eight economic measures have grown or shrunk in recent years: the unemployment rate, the number of non-farm payroll jobs, gross domestic product, average wages, the working age (18-64) population, value of international exports, house prices, and auto sales.
Colorado’s economy came in as the overall winner.
As with many of the other top economies, Colorado’s economy is highly diversified.
1. Colorado saw 1.2% growth in its working age population from 2012 to 2013.
2. The state also had 2.8% growth in non-farm payroll jobs, adding 66,300 jobs between June 2013 and June 2014.
3. Colorado’s GDP (gross domestic product) grew 3.8% year over year in 2013.
